Oh, Hi, Edith.

Through some remarkable new device called “GChat” that allows us to commune with the dead, Mike Conklin had a conversation with thelmagazine.com’s dearly departed Edith Zimmerman. It’s hard to let go, sometimes.

Edith: Oh, you know what is a great book? I am reading it now. Sophie’s Choice. It’s so good.
Edith: Oh, also. There are going to be three frozen yogurt places on Court St. near the UA cinema by September. But there’s only one now, and I’ve been TWO days in a row. It’s so good. Recommended.
Mike: What place?
Edith: Yogo Monster.
Mike: What flavor did you get?
Edith: Plain yogurt with fresh strawberries/blueberries/rasberries. If you do go, and you should because it’s delicious, be careful of their spoons because their lip was too sharp, and it cut my mouth.
Edith: Oh, also, I’ve been mooning around, doing nothing for so long that I have forgotten what information to share with people, so this might be really boring. Oh well!
Mike: No, you basically just instinctively wrote your monday “Recommended” post, only in an ichat.
Edith: Oh, you’re right.
Mike: What else did you do this weekend?
Edith: Nothing really, I don’t think.
Mike: No reason to do stuff if you don’t have to blog about it, I guess.
Edith: That is such a sad sentence.

  • Must try it out! Hi Edith!

  • This has inspired me to write a song: “Blood on the Yogurt”. “That’s not cherry sauce, son / that’s blood…”

    Hi, E!

  • How do you pronounce mönster – is that a genetically modified umlaut? (ooom-lot)

  • Edith, having tasted the yogurt (no pun intended), would you say this is true?

    The heavy metal umlaut is the gratuitous use of an umlaut over letters in the name of a heavy metal band, such as Mötley Crüe or Motörhead. The use of umlauts and other diacritics with a blackletter style typeface is a form of foreign branding intended to give a band’s logo a Teutonic quality. It is a form of marketing that evokes stereotypes of boldness and strength commonly attributed to peoples such as the Vikings; author Reebee Garofalo has attributed its use to a desire for a “Gothic horror” feel.[1] The heavy metal umlaut is never referred to by the term diaeresis in this usage, nor is it generally intended to affect the pronunciation of the band’s name.

  • Sophie’s Choice is NOT a good book.
